    What is this, 1961? Who portrays women as non-productive mooches, hellbent on doing nothing besides living off their hard-working husbands and sleeping with the help? [30 Sep 2004]

    The plot leaves something to be desired, but make no mistake, what is very good about "The Closer" is the charismatic Sedgwick. [11 Jun 2005]

    While the cast is quite good, and they even manage to rip a laugh or two out of the material, it's not enough to sustain a whole show.

    This show could use some brain surgery itself.

    The premise is fun, but if this is CBS' attempt at "Lost," then they are, if not totally lost, certainly in need of a map. And a new writer. Some of the dialogue is laugh-out-loud bad.

    These pros deserve better than bad jokes and swinging doors.

    Since the show stars all these great TV actors... the show sustains some laughs that it wouldn't otherwise be able to wring out of bad material.

    The plot is clever and there's a nice twist at the end, but the actors haven't found a rhythm, nor have they developed any chemistry.

    What's missing here are the big laughs, despite Rock's clever narration.

    While mildly amusing, what the show lacks is charm. And humor. And tension. [2 Jun 2005]

    This would be hilarious, except that political talk TV has become such a parody of itself that watching them is more than enough comedy for anybody.

    The person who steals every scene is Brett Butler as the sister-in-law.

    It's a good thing reality TV has nothing to do with real life.

    While "Studio 60" is/was an annoying, insidery and smug series about the inside doings of the annoyingly smug cast of a "Saturday Night Live-ish" show, "Donnellys" is the annoying, insidery and smug series about the doings of the Donnelly brothers, low-level thugs in Hell's Kitchen in New York City.

    The format is so complicated and the contestants so unappealing that the show misses the mark.

    The series has great potential, and frankly I can't tell you why it doesn't ever quite reach it - other than it somehow lacks, er, magic.

    Interesting take on the biblical story, but if you prefer your Moses as a nicer guy, may I suggest you skip tonight and tomorrow night's new epic and wait for the real Moses, Charlton Heston

    The format is what carries the day.

    The writing is so bad that, I promise, you will sit there mouth agape.

    Both soaps are perfectly awful on almost every level, which makes them nothing, if not, well, hilariously perfect soap scum.

    This is not to say that vapid and ruthless can't work on TV (think "Nip/Tuck"). But vapid and ruthless has to be redeemed by ridiculous and funny.

    It's like watching a drag show--you know, when you're supposed to laugh because we're conditioned to laugh on cue. But in reality, it's forced, er, gaiety.

    It's all a bit ridiculous and the writing is scary, although the stars are first rate and the locales are pretty good too.

    Terrific cast, some fun, but overall the writing is often as dead as Walter.

    The characters are likeable enough so that you might even grow to care about them--and the show--in this arid writers' strike environment.

    Swingtown could have been great. Instead it's a hit-you-over-the-head production--with product placement and wardrobe so obvious it begs us to scream, "That's so authentic!"--best forgotten.

    After a few minutes, it becomes clear that this is yet another formulaic cop drama off the "Lethal Weapon" template.

    Gunn is fine in limited doses. I like him better as a design guru than the closet king.

    The ensemble company, including the always-wonderful Laura San Giacomo, who plays her friend, never misses a beat. Too bad this series--which tries too hard--misses a stanza or two.
